Wan-Bissaka Names Three Players Helping Him At Man United

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has revealed defensive teammates Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Axel Tuanzebe have helped him settle into life at Manchester United.

The former Crystal Palace full-back has been a revelation since making the £50million transfer to United in the summer, nailing down a regular spot in the side and catching the eye with some astute defending.

And although there have been some question marks over the United defence, Wan-Bissaka is content with how he’s connected with other members of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s back four.

“Yeah, definitely,” he told Inside United magazine when asked if he was content with the start he’s made at Old Trafford.

“I’m happy. I think I’ve done well and I think I’ll only get better. I’m quite happy.

“When it comes to games, it’s not just about my performance, it’s about the team. I’ve enjoyed building relationships with the team in games, working on my partnership with the defence.

“We all go off each other, so that helps as well.”

Wan-Bissaka then name-checked Maguire, Lindelof and Tuanzebe as big motivational influences in the United dressing room. He believes the three centre-backs are all leaders for Solskjaer’s side.

“Harry and Victor, they both help me on and off the pitch,” he added. “Before a game, motivation, getting the clean sheet, same as last game, let’s go in hard, look to the next game. That helps. It gets you ready for that game.

“Axel [Tuanzebe] too – he’s really good competition. He’s 22, but he’s mature. He’s similar to Harry and Victor. He’s a loud guy, vocal, he likes to take charge. It helps to have those characters around.”

Wan-Bissaka has come in for criticism from some pundits this season for a perceived weakness in attacking areas. He has just one assist this season, whereas he is the league’s third most prolific tackler behind two Leicester platers.

“My work in the final third is something that needs improving, for me,” he added.

“Coming to this club, that’s something that I knew I could improve here. I knew it would make me a better player, coming to United.”
